Snoball is a neat platform where users can create campaigns to raise donations for their favorite charities.
Snoball users can create a parameter for giving known as a ‘Snoball,’ which defines a specific condition of a donation and can be tied to a user’s interests.
For example, a Snoball may be defined as: “Every time the New York Jets win, I will pledge $1 to the American Red Cross (bad example, we’d only be up to three bucks this season),” or “When I check-in at my favorite bar using Foursquare, I will pledge $5 to the local area food bank.”
The specific event, donation amount and time interval are defined by the user.
Snoball takes care of the rest – the specified donation is triggered at the pre-defined intervals for the life of the Snoball.
Also, Snoballs can be shared across social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare, so you can encourage friends to support the cause or create their own parameter for giving.
In addition, the Snoball platform provides centralized management and reporting of charitable donations for tax purposes.
I’ve created a Snoball where I will donate $5 to Austin Pets Alive each time I check-in on Facebook through the end of this year.
So how does this play into the affiliate model?
Create a Snoball and promote it. The more people who join, pledge, and donate … the better. You’ll receive 1% of all donations on the Snoballs you make for 12 months after the Snoball is created.
